Survival guide to the 2012 Coachella

The Coachella music festival kicks off on April 13 and you can expect big names like Dr. Dre & Snoop, The Black Keys, Swedish House Mafia, and Radiohead among others. You can see the whole line up for the Coachella below.

Here are our survival tips so you can enjoy this year’s Coachella:

Gameplan

You should have a gameplan so you can see the artists you love. Know the line up, know the schedule, and get there before the hoards of people occupy every piece of soil in front of the stage.

Accommodation

This music festival attracts really big crowds and getting a hotel room will not be that easy. By now most rooms in Palm Springs and Indio will be booked so we hope you have reserved rooms earlier or pay a higher price.

Do not drive going to the festival

If you do not want to be stuck, do not drive to the Coachella. The traffic back log is for the books with horrible waits of as much as three to five hours. Take a cab, bike, or walk. You will be better off.

Dress right

It will be in a desert, no need for your party get up. Have the basics which can help you survive the hot daytime and very cold night time.

Explore and Enjoy

The festival is for you to discover music and the arts. There will be a lot of artists you want to see on the lineup and go around the grounds when you do not feel the music scene going on. Aside from the music there will be a lot more to enjoy. Also go with a group so it will be more fun but do not be afraid to split up to discover more.
